HI all, and thanks in advance for your help

first of all, sorry for my english =)

Now, as I sayed in the title :

I'm in eclipse 4.2.0, working for an Android project, and as it's a fresh install, i forgot to increase permgenspace like i had to for previous instal on other PCs.

So, when i saw the permgen error, i went to the wiki to make sure there's no mistake, but whatever i tried (yes, there isn't 50 possibilities ... ) eclipse don't want to launch anymore ....

I can see the splashscreen for 2-3 seconds, the grey progress bar goes to " ? workbench" and then fail with no error massage.

I also tried to restore the original version of my eclipse.ini file but that's not changing anything... so I really don't understand what happenned ...

That's for the problem globally. Now here is some details :

I'm on Win 7.1 x64 with JDK 7.

I'm not sure it has "link" to my problem but :

When the permgen error happenned, i was trying to run an Android App on virtual device. So i clicked on the cross to close eclipse, and it gave me an error i don't really remember (about 4-5 lines of text) finally asking "Do you want to exit the workbench ? >> Y / N". I answered Yes of course Razz .

Perhaps it's in relation to my problem : the launch fail at the workbench step ...

But i really don't understand, this is not my first Android project with Eclipse, and this is not the first time i increase permgen space ... so where is my mistake ???

Please enlight me Very Happy

It's possible the workspace got corrupted when you encountered the first permgen error. Try creating a new workspace and importing your project(s) into it.
